So I'm trying to get back on this board more regularly. Spent the last few very stressful months moving from Cincinnati to Minneapolis. I've been making some great gains in the past 6 months and now that my life is in order I think it's finally time to lean-out now that I have the time, money, and ability to concentrate on something like that. FINALLY get rid of my beer, pizza and twinkies gut of my youth.
So for someone like me (190lb-ish endomorph) I calculated a caloric intake (at a 500 cal/day deficit) at about 2350 cal, 65 fat, 205 carbs, and 235 pro at 25%, 35%, and 40% of my caloric totals, respectively. So I guess my questions are: Has anyone else had any success following a fat-burning program like this? My current workout set is three days lifting (rotating muscle groups), one day cardio, three days lifting, one day cardio, rest, repeat. Should I continue that? Should I jack up my cardio instead of lifting or simply incorporate it into my daily workout routine? If so, circuits? Distance? Steady pace? Time? I've been getting a lot of conflicting information on the subject so any help/questions/comments/concerns would be much appreciated.
The brutality starts May 1st and will last 12 weeks.
